Message from the Head of School

The highlight of my week was joining the Reception Class for forest school. It was an absolute delight to join them in their woodland setting and to observe them learning about numbers, communication, risk taking and working together. My favourite activity was finding the letters and matching envelopes that the woodland postal service mixed up. This engaging and gentle activity encouraged the children to explore the woodland, develop their observation skills and to practice counting and reading numbers. It was a very effective demonstration of why the children in the Lower School are regularly telling me that learning is fun. Thank you Ms. Tomlin!
